March Newsletter – Arts Education Month

March is Arts Education Month

It’s California Arts Education Month! This observance celebrates arts education, including dance, music, theater, literature, design and various visual arts. These experiences encourage creative learning in children and young adults. We believe that arts learning is an essential part of a comprehensive education for all students.

In recent years, school curricula in the United States have shifted heavily toward common core subjects of reading and math, but what about the arts? Although some may regard art education as a luxury, simple creative activities are some of the building blocks of child development. Learning to create and appreciate visual aesthetics may be more important than ever to the development of the next generation of children as they grow up.

FUNDING AND GRANTS FOR ARTS EDUCATION PROGRAMS

FUNDING AND GRANTS FOR ARTS EDUCATION PROGRAMS

Schools receive funding for arts education programs from school districts, PTA/PTOs, grants, foundations, and/or parent donations. If your school requires additional resources due to lack of school funding for the arts or state/district budget cuts for arts education, here are some ways via grants and fundraising options for arts education programs:

“Adequate funding is often an issue for schools wanting to offer a first-class fine arts program” according to Larry Osterink, co-founder and CEO of Arts Attack.  “We have addressed this issue by offering programs that are highly successful when taught by classroom teachers or parent volunteers, as well as by art specialists; and we are excited to partner with PledgeCents to give our schools, PTO’s and teachers another vehicle for funding their visual art curriculum.”

We have recently partnered with PledgeCents, creating a streamlined way for you to easily raise the funds needed to cover the cost.
